Back on the Road I started several years ago

Thursday, July 12, 2012

It seems like I'm revisiting some road I've passed by before, but I'm grateful to have to not start from where I've been. Back in 2007 I weighed 285 pounds. I was in a dark place. I lost my best friend, that I had known half my life. She was so ambitious and just full of life. I wondered why someone like her could just be taken so suddenly. She was the starter of all our adventures- the girl who was just so full of life and gladly pulled me along with her. My highest weight gain happened back then. Trying to silence the sadness. I guess when you loose someone you never quite get over it.

But I realize through the loss of my sister, my best friend, and my father- that all these people are beacons. They are still with me- reminding me to live- and to live well.

I have been truly blessed by the people I've known and the people that are with me now and love me. My husband most of all. Who has been there for me through everything and has been my pillar for so long. Now it's time for me to really pull it together and have strength within myself. I'm ready for change.
